In the fall of 2019 we have added two metal gongs to the 200-yard rifle range. The reinforced steel gongs are 6 inches and 12 inches in diameter. Because they ring when hit, these two yellow gongs allow you to get instant feedback on your shot accuracy without the need of a sighting scope or having to traverse the target range to check your shots. We hope the convinience of these two metal gongs will allow you more time to improve your marksmanship.
In summer of 2019, we have made more improvements to our facility in order to create a more handicapped accessible clubhouse and make things more convenient and safer for our handicapped members. Here are some pictures of the recent upgrades we have made for our members and guests at the CVCC. This wheel chair accessable ramp was installed on the field side of the clubhouse. We hope the members and guests of the handicapped sector of our society will find this upgrade a welcome addition and something that will make enjoying our facility much easier.
Special thanks to Doug Bathke who installed the handicap ramp on the north side of the building.
In 2018, we received a grant from the DNR to make further improvements to our facility in order to create a safer shooting environment for our members. Here are some pictures of the recent range upgrades we have made for our members and our neighbors around the CVCC. These pictures show the "New Pat Trap Machine" installed on trap field three. This new machine is similar to our other Pat Trap Machines only newer. The design features the latest upgrades the company has made since we installed the other two machines over a decade ago. These machines serve us well and with them we have thrown well over 1,000,000 birds in the last 10 years.
2018 Range Improvements
2017 Range Improvements
In late October of 2016, we received a grant from the DNR to make improvements to our facility in order to create a safer shooting environment for our members. Here are some pictures of the recent range upgrades we have made for our members and our neighbors around the CVCC. This picture shows our new safety "impact absorbing " walls with windows cut for shooting lanes to prevent rounds from inadvertently taking a higher trajectory and go over the berm. The distance from bench to berm is 25 yards.
You will notice the new bench lanes can accommodate individuals who may have disabilities and wish to sit or would be smaller in stature (such as children who may be shooting that you are supervising.) The newly laid sand allows much easier clean up of brass and other shell casings.
Similar improvements were also made to the 50 yd., 100 yd., and 200 yd. rifle range stations for your shooting safety.
Additionally, you can see from the image below a security wall was also constructed to prevent inadvertent shot to come from the trap and skeet ranges to the rifle shooting stations.
